Manchester United beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 on Wednesday night but with better finishing and worse goalkeeping, it could have been more.

Manchester United players ran 114.4km in the victory over Tottenham Hotspur, the highest of Ten Hag’s reign and, crucially, near 20km more than they did during the embarrassing 4-0 defeat to Brentford.

The relentless pressing from Manchester United against Tottenham Hotspur was brilliant to watch, with Antonio Conte’s men unable to deal with it.

The trick now is to sustain, perhaps even continue to build upon, that improvement. If United continue to do so then Ten Hag’s first season may end a lot better than it started.
